Private Project


transluscence explores the body as a site of interaction with the world using sensorimotor experience of a place. It reveals the body as an archive of lived moments and not representations of these moments. It examines reception and interaction of experiences when in two different places in the world, Grahamstown, South Africa and Hong Kong, China. The performer connects with the footage attempting to step into the scenes he captured. The viewer interacts empathetically feeling and hearing the experiences of the performer as he slips into the scenes.
